At eight months old Jilly is already working well on her puppy grids and she takes the bends in her stride. 

She has previously played with Sasha and followed her through jump wings and she's also followed a toy round jump wings. 

In the Susan Salo method you would normally be much closer to the jump wings and you would set the dog up right in front of the first "jump" and encourage her to go around to the toy target placed just after the last "Jump".

Here we're doing it slightly differently as Jilly is already keen to go round the bend and get the toy.  As I'm sending her away from me I don't put the toy down first as this encourages her to go straight to the target and miss out the "jumps."

Bends

In the next session on bend work I'll take the jump wings away from the middle apart from the central one and just use stick in the ground poles to mark the ends of the "jumps."  I'll also add two more "jumps" to make it five in total and we'll see how we get on.
